Paul Kelly addresses question about how long Australian Covid patients should stay home from work

Australia’s top doctor says those struck down with Covid-19 still shouldn’t go to work while they have symptoms, despite the axing of mandatory isolation rules nationwide.

The country’s National Cabinet met on Friday where premiers, chief ministers and Prime Minister Anthony Albanese agreed to scrap mandatory Covid-19 isolation rules from October 14. 

Isolation rules will remain for aged care and hospital workers struck down with Covid, but the decision of how long to stay away from the workplace will now be one for most Australians to decide for themselves. 

During a press conference, Seven News reporter Mark Riley pointed out that scrapping the isolation rules gave Australians no clarity on how long they needed to stay away from work.

‘How do they stay away for now – five days, seven days, three days, one day?’ he asked.

Paul Kelly, the Chief Medical Officer, said workplaces shouldn’t treat Covid-19 any different than they have in the last two-and-half years.
